Been wanting to see just based on the premise. I wish Best Buy had better 3d selections, I hate buying online and waiting

"Upside Down" had a great idea for a story. But poorly executed, IMHO. Maybe worth a rental, but I definitely did not buy.

I enjoyed Upside Down, but have only seen in 2d. Curious to check out the 3d.

At under 10$ (on amazon 3rd party) it was a no brainer for me. I will be rewatching it - which doesn't happen much for me. The execution could be better, but there's enough meat and the 3D is excellent.

I thought "Upside Down" was so awful that it was one of the very few movies that I did not bother to finish. I thought that I had thrown my 3D version out, but it turns out it is still lying around my closet.

I'll send this, not even used once, disc to the first person that sends me their address in a private message. I'll pay the postage to get rid of it.

Just rewatched the cartoon/short subject "Get A Horse" that is included on the "Frozen" disc and have to say that this mini-movie had the best use of 3D ever in a seven minute cartoon. You can tell the whole production was really well thought out to bring the effects into the theater space and works like a charm. To bad the suits at Disney have denied North America the ability to buy this disc in our region. If you have a chance watch this short using the virtual theater app on a Samsung Gear VR as it really accentuates how the animators wanted the 3D effects to look in the theater. It's amazing! I've been enjoying rewatching my 3D collection on the Gear and it's great fun.

Seeing that 3DTV has died I really feel 3D VR will be the next step in 3D. Still in it's early stage it provides crosstalk free 3D viewing that truly involves you in the scene and action. There has been much hype as to this being the next big thing, and I think it's well deserved, but I can't imagine the masses wearing a headset for 2 hrs to see a feature film when they went ballistic with hate having to wear a pair of lightweight polarized glasses. However, for us 3D fans it may be the only way to view 3D until the next surge of 3D interest in the future.

****. I hated that movie and sold it off as soon as I watched it. But I LOVE the short attached to BH6 (Feast) and wish I would have seen this one.

What wasn't to like about the movie? I saw only the 2D version, but I thought it was great.

Cogito ergo sum makes a fundamental mistake because it ignores the implied existence of the narrator. Descartes might as well have said "A rose is red, therefore I am".

I know you guys are talking about movies but the best 3D I've seen is on the "Lichtmond" blu-rays, absolutely amazing! Granted it's music, not a movie but damn! They are posted as being region B but they are all region, at least when ordering through Amazon.de.

Agreed! This type of 3d aggression for both depth and pop out shows just how watered down/conservative a lot of 3d movies are.

Have you tried pairing your own tunes with the Lichtmond discs yet Hotrod? I know we talked about this in the music thread, but it works surprisingly well with the right type of tunes!

I know you'll enjoy the animation but I hope you also enjoy the music, if not, you can try Toe's suggestion and listen to whatever you want while watching the animation but I wouldn't expect a "Dark Side Of The Moon/Wizard Of Oz" kind of thing...

Saw Star Trek into darkness last night, not very impressed with the 3d.
In fact, Avatar is still the only disc that really has outstanding 3d. All the others I have seen look flat.
It looks like layered images projected on sheets of glass. In front, the middle, and background.
Avatar is the only one I have seen where the closeups of faces actually have illusion of 3d as opposed
to looking flat.
I never considered James Cameron a good director, but the man does know special effects and is a perfectionist.
I havent seen anything yet that totally puts you into the picture like Avatar does.

Michael Bay can do some very nice 3D effects too. ...His last 'TF4' has some amazing moments/scenes. ...Just the opening for example.

Using acronyms to describe electronics fundamentals and display characteristics makes sense, but why the rampant use of acronyms in movies? There are far too many movies being created for this to be a sustainable practice. I have to run to google everytime I see it. Can we just write them out?

I just rewatched this one this past weekend. I thought it looked great. Spears flying at my face and all. What are you using? Active Passive??

'Transformers: Age of Extinction' - 3D Blu-ray ... Amazing opening scene.
...And there are many more other great scenes as well, with some cool 3D pop-out effects.
But overall the entire 3D movie shines, and it is perfectly suited for the robots/cars.

Of my entire 3D Blu-ray movie collection, this one ranks as one of the top ones. ...The clarity, the details, the fluid movements, ...Michael has improved since 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' in 3D. ...That I could see clearly.

And 'The Hobbit' entire trilogy is also amazing in 3D; one of the very best ones...way on top.

* If you like 3D Blu-rays as I do then those deserve to be in your cinema collection. ...This is what I call high-end 3D entertainment @ the movies.
You might not like all those flicks equally or Michael Bay, but you cannot take away the 3D expertise from them.

I'm using active, but my tv is only 40'' so I have to sit about 4' away. Yeah, I did like those spears at the beginning of the movie

You must not be a bass head. Acronyms become a must when talking/debating bass as these movie titles are brought up so often in those threads that typing some of the longer titles out each time becomes annoying. Forum member NUBE has a list of these acronyms in his signature if you search out one of his posts which will help you out because it's not going to stop.

Have to give another vote to the Lichtmond discs as far as best 3d. The Lichtmond titles as far as pure 3d WOW factor and aggression make most 3d films I have seen look weak in comparison (including the overrated Avatar) and I am not the only one to hold this opinion. In the projector forum, the Lichtmond titles are being considered the new 3d torture test as far as testing the ghosting capabilities of projectors/TVs. If Avatar had this type of aggression, it would be deserving of all the 3d praise it gets. Well worth checking out, but be aware that if your display is prone to ghosting, these titles will have it begging for mercy! Give me more 3d like this please!
